Jump into the Weekend!

Keep your Cool

Be like Steve and get some fresh air, you owe it to yourself. It would have been Mr McQueens 93 birthday today.

Confounding Contraptions

Heath Robinson

Whenever overly complicated and seemingly unnecessarily contrived machines are required then there in no one better call than from the drawing desk of cartoonist William Heath Robinson. His whimsical inventions were improbable, rickety machine barely kept going by incessant tinkering.

Farkles and Gewgaws


Accessorize the ride. A plethora of fixin’s to spruce up the bike. From a studded kidney belt, to Davy Crockett tail tassels. I’d rather just leave the Triumph we’ll enough alone.

Cut from a Different Cloth

Ooh, you are awful, but I like you.

Such was the catch phrase of comedian Dick Emery, whose ribald humor was very much of its day. He was also an avid motorcyclist riding big powerful machines such as this Kawasaki, BMW R90’s and Honda 750’s.

Western Tassels

Wild West Wear and Women

International Women’s day was this past week. To further celebrate the amazing deeds women take on with assured aplomb here’s a lass and her desert sled still knocked up and grizzly from an outback hare.

Black Lightning 1952

Molly & James

Listening to Richard Thompson’s most well known piece this image came to mind so I had to scribble it down.

Red Bob

White Wall

Rigid with springy saddle. But a tooth rattler no doubt. Bright fire engine red and Hunt mag’d ignition. Long smooth roads through the high desert. Not for urban pothole rich streets.

What a memory!

Mahout with Motorcycle

Nellie says just strap ‘er on and I’ll get you through the jungle to your destination. An Indian with an Indian being carried by an Indian elephant. Adventure awaits!

Cafe Gals

Two Fair Ladies

On a swift bike. A proud Triumph owner was obviously persuaded to let these lasses have their photo taken sitting on his pride and joy. They both have a cheeky smile to the camera and I’ll bet are as thick as thieves when making plans for the weekend.

Liter Lump

Sweet power from the classic in-line four from Kawasaki. Engineering art if there is such a thing.

Black ‘n’ White

February Flier

Spotted by Dean yesterday in Chicago. A slight warm-up sees this rider out and about on a nicely fettled Bonneville. Short pipes and wide wire laced wheels are the business. Bud needs a lid to replace his baseball cap.

Man Activated by Compu-puncture Hyperpower

John Probe

A direct ripoff of the Six Million Dollar Man was introduced in 2000AD. A secret agent with computer brain implants strengthened by acupuncture. Wizard boffins in MI6! Here he chases a terrorist riding a Triumph Trident. Hmm, the belligerent is firing the Uzi with his throttle hand.

Comic Creation

46 years ago today this published collection of futuristic stories burst onto the newsagents shelves. I was just 6 at the time but the fabulous artwork was an amazing feature that I loved looking at. Dan Dare, Flesh, Invasion, MACH 1, and the Harlem Heroes. Joined by Judge Dredd in Prog 2. I still have the early profs; now threadbare after numerous readings.

Long Legged

Capt’n Blighty

Some special treatment to this Triumph. The Acme custom parts catalogue was ransacked to fettle this beauty. Of its time.
